A track by Evile features in a new film starring Colin Farrell. ‘Ondine’, by Neil Jordan, is the story of a fisherman who nets what he believes to be a mermaid. Not the premise of a film you’d normally expect to hear some metal in, but nevertheless keen listeners will notice Evile’s 2007 track ‘Bathe In Blood’ being played. Says guitarist Ol Drake, “I just sat down to watch Neil Jordan’s new film ‘Ondine’ starring Colin Farrell. A while ago we allowed the film makers to use our track ‘Bathe in Blood’ in the film. About 30 minutes in, the character Alex (Tony Curran) can be seen headbanging in another room whilst his daughter is reading a book, and the tones of ‘Bathe in Blood’ can be heard. It’s so bizarre yet awesome to hear one of our tracks in a film, and to my surprise a great film. It isn’t usually my cup of tea but it has a great story. Bravo, Mr Jordan and thank you!”
‘Ondine’ is due to be released on DVD in the UK on August 16th. The trailer can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=80HzX8UGEKM
